This was a design a build project having the objective to centralise Weatherford services on one site.
The project included a four storey office building having a floor area of 4600m2 carried out in a number of distinct phases. This was phase 1 and included gymnasium and restaurant facilities.
The structure was a structural steel braced frame carried to pad and strip foundations. Suspended floors were constructed in profiled steel sheeting and concrete topping which had the advantage of reducing the depth of supporting steelwork by composite action.
Castellated beams introduced in the design enabled services to be located.
Site investigation specified by Wright Associates enabled design of reinforced concrete foundations, hardstandings, roads and drainage.
